Child Disciplinary Practice in Georgia

According to the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey

Children in Kindergarten


This report presents the findings of the MICS survey in Georgia, which represents the first comprehensive effort to gather and systematically analyse information on violent discipline as a form of child maltreatment in the country.

Despite certain limitations of data gathering and possible bias related to the application of self-reporting methods, the report offers important insights by evidencing similarities with global challenges as well as identifying some context-related differences.

This report aims to raise researcher and general public awareness on the subject of child discipline, and to serve as an alarm signal for consolidating the dispersed efforts of policy-makers and professionals around research priorities and networking opportunities that can support national action on this matter.
